Vegoritis Winery was founded in 2005 by Christos Boscos, with the support of Yiannis Boutaris. It forms the continuation of the homonymous company that was created by Yiannis Boutaris in the 1990s in Amyntaio. The company’s philosophy is to produce quality wines across a wide price range and the best bearing between price and quality available in the market today. The company attributes great emphasis on their use and cultivation of vineyards in the region using traditional (empirical) methods combined with new techniques and engineering applications. The variety Xinomavro is the focus of interest, along with the development of other new varieties that are perfectly adapted to the microclimate of the region, red and white (Roditis, Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and others). One main area of interest for the company is supporting the development of wine tourism which tends to grow in recent years, with the creation and development of the wineries that can be visited. In 2008 the company started exporting to Germany, Holland and Belgium.
The winery is hosted in the refurbished facilities of Kyr Yianni, in the settlement of Agios Panteleimonas, near the shore of the Lake Vegoritida. In the winery’s basement there is a wine tasting area and a audiovisual presentation on the Amyntaio vineyards characteristics and its history, with parallel presentation of the company’s products. Guided tours inside the production facilities are also provided.
